Background

Vasilikos has three 130 MW steam turbines, one 38 MW gas turbine, and two 220 MW combined cycle units running on fuel oil.[1] EAC is evaluating the possibility of converting their two 220 MW combined cycle units to run on natural gas, a plan dating back to the original units' proposal.[2] Between July 2018 and 2020, Ramboll consulted with EAC to evaluate the units for conversion.[3] The decision also depends on the finalization of the new Cyprus LNG terminal.

Financing from the European Investment Bank for a new 160 MW combined cycle unit was achieved in 2020.[4]
